This was the response when I asked
"XXXXX calculates all clientâ??s calorie/macronutrient breakdowns by first ensuring their minimum protein and fat requirements are meet. As protein is one of the basic components of food and makes all life possible. Fats are required to produce and build new cells. They are a source of energy and are critical in the transmission of nerve impulses. As well as brain function and development.
However once these minimum requirements are meet all remaining calories can be made up from either protein, fats or carbs. This is where XXXX likes to utilise carbs where possible. As carbohydrates are the chief source of energy for all bodily functions and muscular exertion. So including as many carbs in your diet as possible (whilst ensuring your protein and fat minimum requirements are meet) is really the way to go in a lot of cases. The minimum protein requirements XXXX works with is 1g of protein per pound of lean body weight. The minimum fat requirements Josef works with is 0.4g per pound of lean body weight. Ill leave a link below explaining in detail the formulas behind Josef personalised meal plans. Let me know if you have anymore questions regarding this topic"
Also, this is is the 7 day meal plan they have me on;
day 1; 256g P, 206g C, 91g F = 2667 calories
day 2; 266g P, 186g C, 96g F = 2672 calories
day 3; 234g P, 248g C, 94g F = 2774 calories
day 4; 258g P, 211g C, 96g F = 2740 calories
day 5; 288g P, 200g C, 91g F = 2771 calories
day 6; 270g P, 194g C, 95g F = 2711 calories
day 7; 293g P, 183g C, 95g F = 2750 calories
he also states that i have a refeed day every 2 weeks which breaks down into;
280g P, 394g C, 111g F = 3678 calories
From my understanding after I did some research on TNation, carbs should be kept relatively low during the day and mostly consumed pre/during/post, while fats and protein should be high. I did the 100g carb cure and that did great things for me. I dont respond well to carbs at all.
Seeing as this guy was world renowned and hes all over instagram and such, i thought id give him a shot.
Here is an example of one of his workouts he gave me;
seated calf raises 20/15/12/10/8
barbel standing calf raises 20/15/12/10
Standing calf raise (duck feet) 20/15/12
Calf press on the leg press 20/15/12
Standing calf raise (pigeon toe) 20/15/12
Dumbbell incline bench press 20/15/12/10/8
Barbell incline bench press 20/15/12/10
Dumbbell bench press 20/15/12
Dumbbell flys 20/15/12
Barbell bench press 20/15/12
Bit confused to be honest. Dont wanna jump into his program until I get complete understanding as to why he has me training like this. Money back guarantee is also included…
